Release Notes

Release highlights

PHP 7 and Joomla! 3.5 compatible.

Front-end scheduling URL for the PHP File Change Scanner. This allows you to schedule PHP File Change Scanner runs without having to resort to CRON. Check out the new Scheduling information page for more information.

Check Joomla Global Configuration for invalid log or temporary directories. We have observed many of you using your sites' roots for these folders. BAD IDEA! Now we warn you.

Disable IP workarounds in the Core version. They were mistakenly enabled when they are not used anywhere. Sorry about that!

Joomla! 3.x only

Despite our policy of only allowing installation on the latest Joomla! release, this version will run on Joomla! 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 to mitigate the major security issues discovered in Joomla! in October and December 2015.

Please note that we will only provide full support for the latest Joomla! version. Some features –like the Change administrator directory– may not work at all in older Joomla! versions. We've thoroughly tested the security critical Web Application Firewall features against older releases of Joomla! and found them to be working properly.

PHP 5.3.4 or later 5.x version is required

This version requires PHP 5.3.4 or later (e.g. 5.3.29 which is twenty five versions newer than PHP 5.3.4), 5.4, 5.5 or 5.6. Please note that PHP 5.3 is obsolete since August 2014 and we're going to stop supporting it without warning in future versions of our software. We'd like to remind you that Joomla! 3.4 does not currently support PHP 7. You need Joomla! 3.5 to run Joomla! and Admin Tools on PHP 7.

Note: there is no such thing as PHP 6. PHP versions jumped from 5.6 to 7.0. Why? Well, it's a long story. TL;DR: It doesn't have to make sense, just accept it.


Critical bugs and important changes

  • Core version throws a fatal error (it tries to access a Professional feature that doesn't exist in the Core version)
